Nigeria international, Alex Iwobi has insisted that he will take credit for Arsenal ’s second goal in Saturday’s Premier League 4-0 victory over Swansea City at the Liberty stadium.
The forward twice saw his efforts turned into the net by Swansea players, but insists he won’t have both his goals taken away without protesting.
“I’m claiming the first one! It’s on target so I’m going to claim that one,” Iwobi told Arsenal website.
“Second one I can let slide, but the first one is definitely my goal.
“It was quite big [the deflection] I’m not saying, but they all go in, they all count. But that one at least, I’m praying it’s my goal.”
He also disclosed that Arsène Wenger told them to be more ruthless during the half-time break, and that was helpful when they returned for the second half of the match.
“The boss got onto us a bit saying we know we can do better, just keep on moving the ball quickly, as fast as we can,” he continued.
“In the second half we showed our quality and were able to get the three points.
“Swansea gave us a difficult start, they pressed us really well and they also kept the ball and were on the front foot.
“It was a great performance from us and at the end of the day we were able to get the three points.
